Cusco Sways - - Good Or Bad?

I was planning to get the Hotchkis Street or Competition sways but my vendor cannot get parts from that company for cheap. So my next option is Cusco according to him. I am not familiar with Cusco, but my cousin said they were pretty good. I can get the front sway for 150 and the price for the back ones I won't know until Monday. If there is anyone who has had these or know anything about the company, post it. Thanks

They are a japanese brand, so that gives you a HINT that they might be good. I do not have any of their products in my GTS though

in my opinion, any aftermarket bar helps improve handling. like what was said above, cusco is a japanese brand, and that tells you already its made to perform well.

You don't need suspension mods. Just good tires and a "good" alignment

good advice rolleyes . I have never heard about them either. But just so you know you can get the hotchkis for 250 shipped for the front and rear. If the price is similar you will want to find out how stiff it is compared to the hotchkis.

Cusco=Awesome probably the best suspension company in japan. I know that they make stuff for Kei Office and that place is the shit, and expensive to boot.

You want to be the first?
I'm almost 100% they are better than TRD and as good as Hotchkis.
The thing is the Japanese barrier is limiting on the American knowledge. The Cusco sways are how much stiffer than stock Fuji San???? How do they compare to TRD or even Hotchkis Gamara San????
I here crickets chirping on top of my pocket pussy.
Cusco puts out some amazing things for the Celica if you didn't know already. Everything from carbon fiber, LSD, transmission, rotors, etc...
Some of it re-badged from other Japanese companies (whom are all great).
I wish the best of luck to you getting them and installing them. I have been very interested in these sways for some time.

I agreed cusco is a good brand but you need to consider the thickness of these sway bars because you don't want your ride to be too stiff when cornering. Depending what size of rims but I recommend 22-23mm for 18" rims thumbsup

I guess that does it. Cusco it is. Well, the fact is that I would go with Hotchkis but if I could get something better and cheaper, I'd go with the better/cheaper. Thank you guys for giving me your input, I'll be sure to post the pics and details of it when I get it installed.

If they only make the front you could get the front from them and get the rear st sway bar.
